"De gustibus non disputandem est."

I'm fine either with or without mayonnaisse or Miracle Whip, or mustard, or mango-chipotle chutney, or whatever. I'm fine with eating the sandwich ingredients individually, without sauce of any kind.

As a dyed-in-the-wool Aspie with hypersensitivity in every sensory modality, I say (with Heinlein) that "specialization is for insects", and indulging one's sensory pickiness only limits one's life experience.

"There's only one day between what you won't eat, and what you will." It's amazing how effectively a bout of food insecurity (or outright hunger) cures a person of first-world finickiness.
